Cooper’s First Birthday Photo Session

Oh my goodness!  This first birthday photo session was adorable.  His mom Christy contacted me to say they were planning a “Mustache Bash” party for him!  How fun is that?!  Christy made my job easy by bringing all sorts of fun props for this session.

Cooper was a pro!  Between his big handsome eyes and his cheery personality, I think he should be a baby model!  I don’t think he shed a single tear the whole session.  He tolerated multiple outfit changes and setups.  He wasn’t such a huge fan of the mustache but even then I don’t think he cried.  We did get some great pictures of him looking confused as he was taking off his stick-on mustache.

Christy brought the letters that spelled out “O-N-E” and as soon as we handed the O to Cooper he put his little face in the middle and gave us a big grin.  I was not ready for that and was so pleased to see that I had actually captured one of those candid moments in focus.  I am sure that if we tried to recreate that moment we would not have been able to.

Happy First Birthday to Cooper!  I hope you have fun at your Mustache Bash!  Thanks for making your first birthday photo session so fun!
